THANK YOU!!! PEOPLE LOVE THE STATION! Come find out why we are LOVED!!

We have over 300 bands and solo artists also 100 rappers we're helping!

They stay on for hours on end!! Who does that in radio??!! We're very honored!!!

We have reached over 700 markets in 120 countries now because of ZENO FM and STREEMA!! THANK YOU!! You peeps are awesome! Thanks for the vote of confidence to make your day better! Its my duty to put a smile on at least one person's face everyday! I live for it!

We work with bands and artists in 16 countries! Its all radio ready material built for commercial success! We have many BRIT and CANADIAN bands!! We love you guys and gals! Thanks for being on the team!

Hang out! Let the station play for hours like so many do! You will discover a new music universe you never knew existed!

The major labels have dropped the ball and are no longer doing their jobs and that's to bring you bands like these like they used too! We come from that background! We don't understand whats happened to their business model but its no longer about providing the music fan with a real service for the world!

I've scoured the globe between a number of personal and music business connections throughout the industry over the last 12 YEARS to the tune of 30,000 bands! Most of these acts are TOP 100 or TOP 10 BILLBOARD contenders for any time point back to the 70s/80s up to the current music sphere! Indie bands are the pioneers of so many styles and innovations! They should be leading the way!

We at HALSHACK make a promise to YOU to never let that passion die!

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! (JESTERMAN9000@GMAIL.COM)

What are we doing right? What are we doing wrong? Send us your suggestions!

We're trying to understand why some listeners stay on for HOURS and others stay on for one song! All we do are top tier professional indie bands! This is isn't your normal indie station. Its mainstream style songs from NEW bands that are breaking out! We break bands several YEARS ahead of the majors!

The bands chosen are from the last 2 years for season 4 from 2021 to 2023!

In this group there is Brit wave, country, rock, alt, pop, hard rock! You cant judge the whole top 10 off 1 or 2 songs! You have to stay and listen to hear the gems!

10/2...Brand new shows SHACKSTARS series! Best of artists series (Television Skies) and (Big Little Lions)!

Recently new shows have been released (Rock Ages 3) and reboot/remasters of the original Rock Ages 1 and 2 as well as Classic Shack (classic rock styles) and Wonder Shack (new pop/alt style hits)

We're still playing around with the format!

The station has only been back up for a month now! We're trying to establish a solid base! There will be an official schedule coming and plans for genre days only and mixed genre show days only! We are also incorporating full band spotlight shows like the SHACKSTARS series we are bringing back for the radio ONLY! We don't want full libraries being downloaded through the podcast feed of these bands! That's not fair to them but we will spin them here on the station and do them on days with their respective genres!

The show is growing strong across the world on the podcast feed from Iheart to Itunes to Amazon Music to Podomatic and many more! The show has reached 500 cities in 100 countries! All new episodes are on the podcast feed and will be featured here on the station as well! I fired up this station on Zeno back in late 2020 but multiple complications kept the channel from growing! I've updated the bio as well as all current shows!

The current format will have a multiple genre rotation of shows with theme days and weekends or constant rotation of the last 3 years worth of shows! The shows may rotate forward or backward. We will have marathon events or indie themed days or rock shows only or country or rap/ hip-hop and many other type mixes of all the great more current episodes of the Halshack!

There are thousands of songs on rotation in this assortment of episodes uploaded to showcase the shows growth over the last 3 years! You may hear the episode changing to something you don't like. Give it a song or two and it will roll onto something else. TRUST ME!! Each segment changes every 20 minutes. Each episode is built by ME (Hal) to keep the show continuity and my special signature flow I'm becoming world renown for! Again big THANK YOU to all my fans and bands for making this possible!

I've been building my own personal relationships with "A-list" indie bands across the world for the last 10 years!!! This is a UNIQUE mix of 450 artists roughly over the last 10 years the show has been "up" and Ive done it all for FREE!! This has been an amazing grassroots effort from alot of professionals in the industry to springboard us forward! Ive earned partners who are ex major label reps who jumped on with me to help grow our own universe! Some of the artists are very mainstream and others lean to the indie side of things! Its up to you to find your happy music place!

Reverbnation owner Lou Plaia contacted me personally to run official radio submission campaigns for his company back in Nov 2020. First campaign started in Jan 2021 and had the first show for the company in Mar 2021! We went from 120 artists I had spent 7 years hand curating to now 450 almost 3 years later representing 15 countries! Every single artist has been curated and chosen by my ears only either because they had a viable hit for one show or they have a library that never ends that sees continual play across multiple years of my history. Songs are chosen based on the theme of the show and their rotation in the schedule. I try not to overplay tunes so some of the really BIG hits on my show don't get annoying or overbearing to the listener!

Ive been lucky enough to earn projects produced by or backed credits or collab songs from major stars lending their efforts to these indie bands. Stevie Nicks, Frankie Muniz, Belinda Carlisle, Eminem, Cavo, Lil Zane, Nic Collins (son of Phil Collins) and many more!! I'm very honored!!

Hope you jump on the Halshack bandwagon! Were bringing a successful festival to North Carolina with (my personal team and local business owners) that will not be cancelled like the Wampus Cat, the HIGH ROCK MUSIC FEST is coming August 2024 with CAVO as a headliner!!

You can find every tracklist at my website under shacklists! Each show has its own list and there are displayed in order of release! The quickest way to get there search google "halshack shacklists" or right here
